Lessons for the Intergroup Contact Theory: Odyssey of an African American University Professional
with Dr. Alphonse Keasley
In August 2020, Dr. Alphonse Keasley retired as a faculty member in the Speech, Language and Hearing Department, instructor and later Assistant Director in the Student Academic Success Center (SASC), a disability specialist, director of the Miramontes (formerly Minority) Arts and Sciences Program (MASP), an actor with the University Theater as well as the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, a Fulbright Specialist in South Africa, and finally as Associate Vice Chancellor in the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU-B). However, he continues to teach CU-B students in the Honors Program and the Leadership Studies Minor Program.
In Dr. Keasley's presentation, he reflects and capitalizes on his vast experience and shares the lessons that can benefit future cross-racial, cross-ethnic endeavors. Additionally, he outlines what makes an Honors Program course different, and how Honors courses like his can affect your academic career and life.
